In 2009, the Sens traded Antoine Vermette for Pascal Leclaire and a second-rounder (Robin Lehner). Last night, he scored the game-winning goal for the Phoenix Coyotes.
It's tough to moan too much about these trades at this point in history, but my goodness... couldn't they have put some of that clutch offence on the board during those past Senators playoff disappointments?
Tomorrow night, some more Ottawa Senators draft picks will hopefully score game-winning goals. And those should be against the New York Rangers.
